The Golden Bowl is a 1904 novel by Henry James. Set in England, this complex, intense study of marriage and adultery completes what some critics have called the "major phase" of James' career. The Golden Bowl explores the tangle of interrelationships between a father and daughter and their respective spouses. The novel focuses deeply and almost exclusively on the consciousness of the central characters, with sometimes obsessive detail but also with powerful insight. (Summary by Wikipedia)

A magnificent classic. Regarding this reading, there's good news and bad news. The bad news is that Ms Howlett's largely monotone style sucks all the life out of James' sparkling elliptical phrases. The good news is, if you make a drinking game out of all the times she mispronounces words, both Italian and English, you will soon be too drunk to care.
